I hope I can get some input here, despite the obvious fact that no one here is really a drummer.
I'm looking at recording a drum kit with the absolute best sound for value. I'm thinking about buying 4 or 5 SM57s and a bass drum mic and recording a kit like that.
I'm looking for some opinions as well as some advice.
Also, has anyone had any experience with drum triggers? I was thinking about recording each part of the kit individually and then using drum triggers to record the whole kit and inserting the pre-recorded sound overtop so I dont have to do any gating or compressing to reduce spill and enhance clarity.
